Internet newspaper reading may be functional with its nearly instantaneous information, but it's rarely enjoyable. That is why I still pay for The Saratogian. I just like to sit and relax while I read the actual newspaper - even if the news is 18 hours old.
As far as the Sports section of the newspaper goes, I want to read about last night's ballgame, even if I already saw it and could have read about it on any of hundreds of web sites. I want to read about the college and NFL football games. And in early November, I want to read about the Breeders' Cup races I saw the day before.
But if you read Sunday's print edition of the Saratogian, you would only read about the races that occurred before 6pm. Four Breeders' Cup Races totaling $11.5 million in purses, starting with the Breeder's Cup Turf at 6:22PM (EST) through the thrilling Classic at 8:45PM, won by a nose by Mucho Macho Man, weren't reported in The Saratogian's Sunday print edition.
On a related note, albeit at the risk of piling on, I really miss the prolific work of that Andrew Champagne before he left the Saratogian a month or so ago. That guy wrote a lot of quality articles about horse racing, and he apparently has not been replaced because other than the commentaries of Mike Veitch and Jeff Scott, there appears to be very little locally based reporting since Champagne left.
